and welcome one, welcome all to off the wall. we are counting down the hours to the big game. >> the super bowl. >> biggest game of them all. >> are you ready to go some predictions? do you remember who you picked to go to the super bowl? > i don't remember. >> i had the packers and the steelers. i actually had the vikings and the patriots. >> do you remember when i said the brett favre thing wouldn't work? >> you don't remember your teams. you had vince young. that's all i remember back in august. anyway, before we give our official predictions because i know everybody is waiting for what you have to say about the game. what do you think about mike tomlin and the job he's done? i think he is under rated. >> i agree with you.
he is a fiery guy. he's passionate. >> i thought you didn't like the rara guy. >> if you can back it up, i think -- >> oh, you went there. >> he's a good coach because he talks the talk and walks the walk. that's enough. you get where i'm going. this guy is good. he is passionate. his players respond to him. plus, he is from a good organization. >> the first title -- i don't buy that theory. to me, you have a different group in that locker room no matter who the turnover is. you have to somehow get those guys that year to win it. i don't discredit him for that. this would be viewed as his first super bowl. >> and if he gets number two in this short amount of time, then you talk about tomlin as one of the greats. he is still young. >> how does mike tomlin and dick labeu stop aaron rogers? this guy has been on a mission. the hottest player in all of
the playoffs. >> you know what, the steelers defense is solid. i'm not buying the run game for the packers. if they shut down the run game and force rogers to throw a lot, the steelers defense is good enough. what i saw in the last game against the bears and all those garbage quarterbacks. at the end of the game -- >> i can't continue. >> and you still hurt. what i saw at the end of the game, when the packers needed to run the clock out, when they needed first downs, they couldn't get them. >> we are running long. >> just a couple quick points. i love when aaron rogers does this. who are you picking and why? >> black and yellow. black and yellow. >> really? >> black and yellow. i need not say anything else. the steelers will win this 24- 20. >> just like we have all year, i agree to disagree. it is the pack attack green bay. it won't be close. they will blow out the black and yellow. i'm going 30-13.
shutting down the steeler offense. that's it. we'll see you next week with oughted edition. >> by the way, the capitals host the penguins. they have predictions on who will win the other big game. >> i want to go with green bay. pittsburgh is a good team, but i want to go with green bay. >> you can't cheer for pittsburgh in any sport, can you? >> i don't think so. >> i'm going to go with green bay. 35-31. got it? i just hope it's not pittsburgh. i don't know who is going to win, but i hope it's not them. >> fox 5's super bowl coverage starts at noon. kickoff is at 6:30. we'll see you tomorrow. good night. thank you for watching sports extra. brought to you by your washington area nissan dealer.
